Beautiful ship and friendly, informed staff. Only disappointment was the lack of wind! Interesting to see the teamwork involved in taking the sails down.

We absolutely loved our tour of the Bluenose II while she was docked in Canso. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable about her history. They are all such great ambassadors about this spectacular vessel and the province of Nova Scotia.
